The Oklahoma City Thunder will debut an unprecedented third court at the Paycom Center this season. Before this, the OKC Thunder have only dawned one alternate court during a season (2021-22), a white/light grey look. Since then, the Paycom Center floor has remained unchanged during OKC Thunder games.
This season, not only will the alternate courts return, but it came back with twice the fun this year. Not only will the OKC Thunder reveal a special edition NBA In-Season Tournament court for its pool play games in November, but the Thunder will also play a handful on this new city edition hardwood.
The OKC Thunder are set to debut a second special edition court for the 2023-24 NBA season, a new mark for the franchise.
The OKC Thunder have finally announced their 2023-24 City Edition Uniforms, and they look much better than the original leaks. These kits will immediately rank among the best of the City Edition line in OKC Thunder history, a lineup that is now seven years old.
The deep Navy Blue that originally leaked out as a black uniform combo, mixed with the sunset orange and yellow combo makes for a really interesting uniform look. The team will wear Orange accessories with the uniforms.
This look will debut on Friday against the Golden State Warriors and are assumed to be worn against against the San Antonio Spurs in their second home In Season Tournament game on November 14th.
While the Uniforms will debut Tomorrow, the City Edition Court will not be laid in the Paycom Center until the New Year’s Eve Classic against the Brooklyn Nets. The Thunder will also sport the combo jersey and court against the Raptors (Feb. 2nd), Kings (Feb. 11th), Grizzlies (Mar. 10th), and Mavericks (April 14th). This marks the second consecutive year that they will wear the City Edition gear in the Thunder’s lone home game against the Raptors.
The OKC Thunder have released the following Statement about the uniforms: “The City Edition Uniform exemplifies Oklahoma City’s evolving landscape that we see in every neighborhood in all quadrants of the city,” said Brian Byrnes, Thunder senior vice president of Sales and Marketing. “By tapping into the strong roots that have propelled us to where we are today, we’re witnessing inspiring innovation and momentum in everything from food to music to public transportation that’s carrying us forward as we move into the second quarter of the 21st century.”
